Shopping List Holder

I have tried to use my iPhone as my 'everything' however I am still old school in that I like a grocery list.  If there is a list somewhere, then everyone in the house can add to it - otherwise they say they told me and if I don't go find my phone and add the item to my phone list - I don't buy it.  Then of course it is my fault ;)

Now I decided to go back to the 'old fashioned' way of having a grocery list and that way "if it wasn't on the list I didn't get it" - then it is their fault and I like that much better :)   Anyhow, when I saw this fun Fresh Vegetable Soup collection by Jillibean Soup - I knew just what I was going to do.  I dug out an old wooden board I picked up at a garage sale.  I painted the back and sides in a burnt red color then cut out some kraft cardstock to fit.  I stamped the Unity Woodgrain Stamp on it to mimic a wooden board then I just went to work layering paper, bits and pieces of the Fresh Vegetable Soup to create my list holder.


Now this just sits in a corner of my kitchen and it is much nicer to look at than the regular 'old fashioned' grocery list.


Here is what the board looked like before:

Now head on over to the Jillibean Soup Blog to see the other Projects the Designers have created.

I loved the backstory behind this project and it makes the look of this even better! I tried a phone list all of one time before I knew it wasn't for me. Kudos to those who can embrace it. Pen and paper gals unite! Love how wonderful the project looks. You did an excellent job.

What a fun idea to re-purpose the wooden board - great project!

Stinkin' cute! And, I agree. I still use a paper grocery list too, and even then everyone forgets to add their items. And, it STILL is my fault that I didn't read their minds. :)
